Playa Paraiso, Cayo Largo

4.8
#1 of 8 in Things to do in Cayo Largo
With attractive blue hues and soft white sands, it's hardly surprising that Playa Paraiso frequently makes the list of the beast beaches, not only in Cuba, but around the world. Located in a nature reserve 5 km (3.1 mi) from the more developed hotel zone, the pristine stretch of coast boasts both space and serenity, perfect for a relaxing afternoon. Take a refreshing dip in calm shallow waters, then head up the beach to the shaded snack bar for a delicious mojito or frosty beer. A handful of umbrellas, beach loungers, and restrooms provide just enough facilities, while still fostering a tranquil, untouched environment that you’ll never want to leave.

  • The best beach I saw in my life! Clear, warm waters even in winter, very little waves and few people by the difficulty of access to the key accessed only by plane.

  • Is the typical tropical dream Beach: sand and soft surrounding a transparent sea blue/blue/turquoise colours. The water temperature is very pleasant and on sandy ground you can find enormous Orange starfish on. Generally uncrowded and therefore very enjoyable. There is also a small restaurant that we didn't because we had the all inclusive in the village. Not to be missed if you go to Cayo Largo!

  • Our favorite for swimming flat sea and beautiful colors. You will also find many Starfish but few fish for snorkeling. Do not recommend to eat lobster on the beach bar (overcooked and tasteless and always changes the price to 20cuc Initials wanted 30 eventually more than in hotel sol cayo Largo waited on hand and foot)

Where to stay in Cayo Largo

Most accommodations on Cayo Largo sit on the south coast, not far from the beach. These consist of resorts, hotels, and private villas--expect a swimming pool, air-conditioned rooms, and complimentary breakfast. If you're after a slightly different scene, you can stay at a bed and breakfast at the center of the island, or an eco-lodge in the north.
